I am Kate Castrogiovanni, owner of Well Kneaded Massage and I have been a massage therapist since 2005. Before choosing massage therapy as a career, I graduated from East Stroudsburg University with a degree in Exercise Science and worked as a personal trainer for a year before attending massage school at the Pennsylvania Institute of Massage Therapy in Quakertown, Pa. I began an interest in massage as a young child massaging my father's feet and back on a regular basis. I was able to strengthen my hands as an athlete playing field hockey, basketball and throwing javelin and shot-put in track and field. Little did I know that all that training and strengthening would enhance my career down the road! I don't, however solely rely on physical strength. Throughout my time in school, my mother was very sick with cancer. She gave me a new appreciation for touch and massage as a gentle means for comfort and pain management. Once, when rubbing my mom's neck and shoulders I was trying to "show off" what I'd learned in school and mom stopped me saying, "Kate, just rub me..." I learned then that not everyone wants the same thing from a massage and it is my intention to listen carefully to the client and their body to give a truely Well Kneaded Massage. I have been blessed to be able to work with a number of other massage therapists as well. At Well Kneaded Massage, we wholeheartedly intend to go into each massage with the client's needs and desires in mind. Every body is different and we treat each one as such. We look forward to the opportunity to serve you. We sincerely thank you for that opportunity.
